A Much Improved "In Memoriam"
From Roger Ebert's Journal:
This is a wonderful set of choices for the clips and it's nice to be able to see them all put together like this. It's pretty much the video they showed during the Oscars, but the constantly moving camera and different screens took the focus away from the purpose of the segment - to honour and remember those who have passed. I find it's much more powerful and respectful simply shown like this.
Apparently not many people agree with my overall thoughts though (ratings up 13%, many critical and blog raves for the telecast). Oh well.
